Happy Mothering Sunday!

In the UK we celebrate Mothering Sunday today.

As always with these long-celebrated events, there is some debate about what it all means. Was the original mothering day when people would go back to their home parish, i.e. return to their mother church, or was it another kind of religious observation which noted relationships between a people and their common beliefs? Nowadays Mothering Sunday is a celebration of motherhood in the UK (and some other countries of the world) and is a fairly recent invention, having become popularised in the middle of the 20th Century. What ever the case, to all mothers out there, of whatever type and whatever definition, we hope you have a lovely day and enjoy whatever treates come your way!
